Google Nexus 5 has been listed as coming soon on all the major online retailer in India, however Snapdeal has already started taking the pre-orders of Nexus 5, and even the pre-orders are SOLD OUT.

Snapdeal is taking the pre-orders of Nexus 5 (16GB) White and Black for Rs. 29,999, which is 1K more than the official price. The smartphone recently went again on pre-order on Snapdeal and within few hours it was sold out, third time in a row.

If iGyaan report is believed to be true, then Google will launch the Nexus 5 in India officially on 20th November. According to them, Snapdeal has sent an email to all the customers who pre-ordered the Nexus 5 stating that, the Nexus 5 will be available in India starting November 20th. This leads us to believe that the official launch might be on the same day as well or even before.

There is no way to confirm this date, but we hope it to be true.
